This build focuses on maximizing Talonflame's burst damage to get easy knockdowns. Set up your attack by landing on enemies with Fly, then finishing them off using Aerial Ace. You can also use Fly to easily disengage from fights when the need arises.

Muscle Band, Scope Lens, and Razor Claw contribute to Talonflame's burst damage output, particularly critical hits. Since you don't have any defensive items, you have to pick your targets carefully. Because of their low HP, focus on enemy Attackers or Supporters first.

Eject Button is a great tool for escaping when things go awry, making it a must-have battle item. Try to save it for escaping only as much as possible.

Your Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for maximum damage and 4 White Emblems for additional HP. Equip Emblems that improve Attack or Critical-Hit Rate since the build is centered on burst damage. You can freely trade Sp. Atk and Movement Speed.

This build takes advantage of the cooldown reset mechanic from using Brave Bird. Your gameplay should be diving the backlines with Brave Bird then bursting them down with multiple Aerial Ace activations. Successfully hitting an opponent with Brave Bird get marked and will reset Aerial Ace's cooldown when you hit them with a boosted attack. If you're fast enough, you can chain the reset of Aerial Ace as long as there are marked enemies. Always utilize this mechanic to maximize your damage output and sustain yourself with heals.

Muscle Band and Scope Lens are staple damaged items, giving you enough damage to burst down targets. Focus Band gives you the extra sturdiness and heals you when your HP gets low enough, ensuring better survivability after a successful setup.

X Speed gives Talonflame a consistent source of a movement speed buff for repositioning. An Eject Button is a good alternative if you are looking for a more straightforward dash.

Attack Weight and Razor Claw boosts your burst damage further, especially once Attack Weight is fully stacked. Buddy Barrier increases your HP and gives you a teamfight tool, especially since your Unite Move recharge rate is fast. However, you can replace Buddy Barrier with Focus Band for a better laning item.

Eject Button is the default battle item for the build, adding more mobility. However, you can also equip X Speed instead for a similar effect.

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Fly ImageFly Fly is a flexible move with a high damage potential. Additionally, it can be used in various situations such as sneaking a goal, chasing fleeing targets, and traversing over walls.
Aerial Ace ImageAerial Ace Aerial Ace enables Talonflame to recover a certain amount of HP when the move hits. This adds a sustain mechanic to Talonflame, making up for its fragility.

Both these moves offer a balance of mobility and damage with a bit of sustain. If you want more mobility for traversing the battlefield, learn Flame Charge instead of Aerial Ace. For a more combo-based approach, learn Brave Bird and Aerial Ace so you can take advantage of the cooldown reduction effect.

How to Play Talonflame

Jump to Section

Play Safe Until Level 7

Pokemon UNITE - Talonflame Reaching  Level 7.png

Talonflame truly shines when it gets access to its powerful, high-damaging moves at Level 7. Here, you can either pick the aggressive Brave Bird or the tactical Fly. Both of these moves greatly improve your ganking power, so make sure to rush your level to 7 before starting to make plays across the map. You can then use the surge in strength to surprise a vulnerable lane and then keep on pressing your advantage from thereon.

Jungler role is Recommended

For the fastest start possible, Taking the jungler role is recommended. Not only will Talonflame benefit from the uncontested farming, but it can also traverse the central area of Theia Sky Ruins efficiently thanks to its movement speed and dash moves. Having access to Acrobatics and Peck during the early game makes farming Wild Pokemon camps easier.

Get the Most Out of Dash Moves

Pokemon UNITE - Talonflame Strong Entrance with Dash Move.png

Talonflame has an arsenal of Dash moves that give it incredible mobility. Taking advantage of these moves is core to Talonflame's gameplay.

Use Fly to Engage or Disengage from a Fight

Opting for Fly gives Talonflame both a burst move and a means of escape. You can even dodge attacks comepletely if you time the move right. Additionally, your movement speed is increased while using Fly, so most enemies will not be able to catch up to you, which is more true if you use it to go over walls.

Fly: Talonflame Move Effect and Cooldown

Use Brave Bird to Burst Down Opponents

Brave Bird can deal insane amounts of damage but its more useful strength is the distance it covers. You can use Brave Bird to travel to the enemy team's rear, then pick off easy targets to break their formation. Take note that Brave Bird does recoil damage to Talonflame. So, make sure to pick targets that you are certain you can take down fast.

Brave Bird: Talonflame Move Effect and Cooldown

Sneak Points if you have Score-Related Items

Pokemon UNITE - Talonflame Scoring a Goal

Talonflame can easily go in and out of enemy goal zones thanks to its moves acting as an escape mechanism. Take advantage of this by equipping items that scale up in power like Attack Weight or a Score Shield. Every time you score a goal (maximum of 6) you can gain an extra boost in stats your these items. Use Acrobatics to sneak behind enemy goal lines if no ganks are favorable to score some points and increase Talonflame's power even more!

Learn Damage Move Based on Playstyle

Pokemon UNITE - Talonflame Knocking Down Zeraora with Flame Charge.png

Talonflame's damage moves are brawl-focused and give you more flexibility when fighting targets. While both moves can be used to deal damage, they have distinct differences that can help you realize your desired playstyle for Talonflame.

Get HP Recovery with Aerial Ace

Aerial Ace is a great sure-hit move that allows Talonflame to reposition itself behind targets. Moreover, the move increases Talonflame's survivability by giving HP recovery each time it hits a target. This helps you stay in the fight longer to deal the final hits. Aerial Ace is best paired with Brave Bird, so you can take advantage of the cooldown reduction effect when you hit targets.

Aerial Ace: Talonflame Move Effect and Cooldown

Get Consistent Mobility with Flame Charge

Flame Charge is a more straightforward damaging move that also acts as an additional source of dash for Talonflame. Using it will also instantly fill Talonflame's boosted attack meter, allowing you to follow up with even more damage. Unlike Aerial Ace, you can use Flame Charge without a target, giving you more flexibility.

Flame Charge: Talonflame Move Effect and Cooldown

Pick your Targets Carefully

Pokemon UNITE - Talonflame Isolating Glaceon with Flame Sweep

Talonflame's kit excels at diving into fights to burst down enemies in quick succession. This particular Pokemon warrants increased aggression as all of your moves revolve around closing the distance between you and the target to deal high amounts of damage. However, Talonflame's survivability is not that high, especially when it misses its initial burst moves.

Focus on Easy Matchups

Talonflame's initial burst damage is enough to take down single targets. However, Talonflame may be left vulnerable if its target survives. So, make sure to pick targets that are easy matchups or Pokemon who sustained enough damage for a quick knockdown. Additionally, although you can deal AoE damage with your dash moves, it is still best to avoid charging toward grouped enemies, especially when they have full health.

Matchups & Counters for Talonflame

Displace Opponents with Flame Sweep

Flame Sweep can cover a decent amount of range. Use it against the enemy team to push them into disadvantageous positions. This will help contest Boss Pokemon as you can effectively zone enemies out and give your team an opening to secure objectives. After using it, use Fly or Brave Bird to escape, especially if you're alone inside enemy lines.

Progression and Leveling Guide

Top or Bottom Lane Guide

Level Objectives
1 - 6 • Secure as many Wild Pokemon as you can and get EXP. Steal camps with Acrobatics.
• Steer clear from the enemy Attackers as they can easily pressure Talonflame's HP from afar.
• Once you learn either Flame Charge or Aerial Ace, focus on using them to farm Wild Pokemon camps to reach higher levels. Only engage opponents when you have the advantage.
7 - 9 • Talonflame's mobility drastically increases once it learns Fly or Brave Bird. At this point, use the moves only at easy matchups for quick knockdowns. For objectives, only use the moves to steal and avoid facing them head-on unless you are with your teammates.
• If you have stacking items like Attack Weight or Aeos Cookie, use the moves to get quick scores.
• Do not Use Flame Sweep to engage opponents. Instead, use it to push them towards a bad spot like behind allied goal zones or disengage from losing fights.
10+ • Once you reach level 10, you can face off against even matchups using your move combos. Make sure you land your moves properly as completely missing them will likely result in a loss.
• The next objective spawns are much easier to contest thanks to the increase in damage output you received from move upgrades. Rally your teammates to lead the charge towards securing Regieleki or Regice, Registeel, or Regirock.

Jungle Guide

Level Objectives
1 - 5 • Clear the first wave of jungle camps and level up to level 5. Use Acrobatics to cover more ground while also dealing damage. Then, transition to the lane that is closest to you.
• Hide in the tall grass and wait for the opposing team to over-extend. Engage the opponent with Acrobatics, then immediately follow it up with a Flame Charge or Aerial Ace, for a surprise attack. However, when the gank fails, do not chase targets towards goal zones.
• Help the lane secure the Altaria and Swablus.
• If the opportunity presents itself, score your accumulated Aeos Energy.
6 - 9 • Clear the second wave of jungle camps to reach level 7 and get both of your primary moveset.
• Transition back to a lane and help secure its respective objective.
• Seek out and knock down easy targets like enemy Attackers or Supporters.
10+ • Utilize Flame Sweep's wide knockback to pick off single targets or displace the enemy team for the whole team to take advantage.
• During the final stretch, focus on knocking down opponents instead of Rayquaza.

Talonflame Combos

This is your main ganking combo during the early game. Acrobatics followed by Peck isn't a devastating combo in itself but it allows you to close the gap between yourself and your target so it's a good start for the early game.

Brave Bird Diver Combo

Even Matchups for Talonflame

Strike When Weak

Pokemon with High HP
Blastoise Image Blissey Image Greedent Image Mamoswine Image Slowbro Image Snorlax Image
How to Beat
• Since these Pokemon have innately high HP and defenses, facing them head-on will prove difficult as your burst moves may not be enough for a clean knock down. It is best to wait for their HP to reach low levels before you engage using Brave Bird or Fly for a better chance of winning the brawl. Try to hide in the Tall Grass first and patiently wait for the right opportunity to strike.

Avoid Prolonged Fights

Burst Damage Pokemon
Cinderace Image Crustle Image Garchomp Image Greninja Image Lucario Image Scizor Image Wigglytuff Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon have ways of making themselves hard to target. Missing your initial burst move will mostly result in losing the fight, so make sure to make your attacks count.
• Place them at disadvantageous positions like behind an ally goal zone using Flame Sweep.

Outgun and Get the First Strike

Pokemon with Burst Damage
Absol Image Dragonite Image Dodrio Image Gengar Image Zeraora Image Zoroark Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon have burst moves. While it is a good strategy to bait out their moves, it is best to land the first strike so that they will play defensively. Otherwise, use Fly to dodge or bait their moves and attacks, then deal burst damage.

Easy Matchups for Talonflame

Easy Targets

Pokemon with Low HP
Alolan Ninetales Image Cramorant Image Delphox Image Duraludon Image Sylveon Image Venusaur Image

• Push them towards your team or isolate them using Flame Sweep.

Get Close and Burst Down

Pokemon with Ranged Attacks
Decidueye Image Sylveon Image Espeon Image Gardevoir Image Glaceon Image Mew Image Pikachu Image
How to Beat

• Push them towards your team or isolate them using Flame Sweep.

Cut Off the Support

Supporter Pokemon
Clefable Image Eldegoss Image Hoopa Image Mr. Mime Image Sableye Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon are only strong when they are with their teammates. You will mostly find them in the middle of the enemy team as they generate an advantage with their support moves. In a team clash, make sure to take them down first by engaging with either Fly or Brave Bird, then use the same move to get out of danger.

Make them Play Defensively

Pokemon with Low Defense
Azumarill Image Charizard Image
How to Beat
• These All-Rounder Pokemon have low enough defenses, which can easily be exploitedwith just one combo. Landing your initial burst move means that they will use their moves defensively instead of trying to fight back.
